The CFL has fined Riders defensive lineman Makana Henry for unnecessary contact inside the bench area on Redblacks quarterback Dominique Davis.

As Davis went out of bounds during the fourth quarter against Saskatchewan in Week 2, Henry stands firm and knocks him down.

Henry was assessed a 15-yard penalty for roughness. The foul improved Ottawa’s drive which resulted in a field goal to give the Redblacks a two touchdown advantage at the time. Davis was able to stay in the game.

There is a history for Henry being disciplined by the league, back in 2015 he was fined for leading with the crown of his helmet on then-Winnipeg quarterback Dan LeFevour. That makes the hit on Davis and subsequent fine the second infraction on his record.
